The Spirit at Work in Our Weakness (Romans 8:26-27)

One of the places in Scripture where the Holy Spirit’s work is seen most clearly is in Romans 8. In fact, 20 of the 30 mentions of the Spirit in Romans occur in this chapter alone. And this brings us to vv. 26-27, which are a beautiful summary of the Spirit’s work in our lives as children of God. This is arguably the most strange passage on the Holy Spirit and prayer in all the Bible. And yet, it is a simple, profound, and wildly comforting truth. In this sermon pastor Mitch reminds us that Christians can endure the sufferings of this present time because the Spirit helps us in our weakness.
